Ms Maria Kawesa, Environmental Alert’s programme officer in charge of the project said the banana peel bran is a good substitute to maize bran which is becoming very expensive for poultry farmers because it is highly nutritious.
She said what the farmers need is to add cotton seed, silver fish (mukene), sun flower and other ingredients to make proper meals for poultry, pigs and other animals. This banana bran is very cheap because a kilogramme costs Shs250 compared to a kilogramme of maize bran that ranges between Shs350-Shs500.
